The weather was not good today. Hey hum.
783 St Giles, Bredon
The rain was a falling and we ended up at Upton House (and yes Bredon is in the other direction from where I'm staying! but it was the last one over there I needed :D) ). We had lunch a nice Tomato soup and went for a stroll around the garden yes in the rain, it did stop ad hocly.
The house looks dull but the contents are anything but.
We didn't stay that long because I FINALLY wanted to go to Farnborough Hall, a small National Trust property that is open 2-6 two days a week. Curiously whilst waiting for Trish to arrive from her B&B I found a church I needed was very close to it!
784 All Saints, Burton Dassett - it is now effectively in a country park with just a few houses. Its mostly used by North End I'm told.
Farnborough Hall had little parking and no signs - not very national trust the
later! There may have been more parking further down the road. Alas no photos, not sure why.
The house is quite nice, not much is open but worth a visit if you are nearby.
A flash of blue shot through, a Kingfisher magical!
You may have seen the sun above! But within 5 minutes of taking the above the heavens opened and we gave up thoughts of the terrace walk and headed back. We stopped at a garden centre near the village for tea and cake - nice!
My estimate of £250 for the topiary of the horse was off by a factor of 10!!!
Nice time with good company.
